After sweeping the Yankees in the ALCS, the Tigers enjoyed a nice little break awaiting the outcome of the NLCS. Finally, after a much more dramatic 7-game series that saw the San Francisco come back from a 3-1 deficit, the Tigers will be taking on the Giants. The 2012 MLB playoffs may be remembered for the new wild card round or an LDS round that saw all four series go the distance, but now that the World Series is set, it will be two division winners that face off in this year's Fall Classic.
Currently, Tigers World Series tickets are averaging $773 per ticket, and while that is pretty pricey, it is 29% less expensive than the $1,094 average for World Series tickets in San Francisco. Also, as Tigers fans sat waiting for their opponent to be set prices for each of the three games in Detroit began to trend downward. For game 3 prices are down 3%, while games 4 & 5 are both down 6% in the last week. These are trends that will certainly start heading in the other direction if the Tigers get off to a good start in San Francisco, and with the Tigers rotation all set up and rested that's a pretty likely scenario.
If you're looking for more affordable options, the average get-in price for all three games is $382 per seat, 50% below the game averages. With an average price of $790, the most expensive game in Detroit is the usually decisive game 5. Surprisingly, the get-in price for that game--$359 per seat-- happens to be the lowest of the three games in Motown. So if you're the type of ticket-buyer that likes to plan ahead, picking up those game 5 tickets now might be the smart move.
It's been 28 years since the Tigers were on top of the baseball world, and now they're just four victories away from planting their flag on top of that mountain once again. They may not have gotten the rematch vs. the Cardinals that many fans wanted, but this World Series looks like it's going to be a good one.
